DENISE HO: BECOMING THE SONG profiles the openly gay Hong Kong singer and human rights activist Denise Ho.

Drawing on unprecedented, years-long access, the film explores her remarkable journey from commercial Cantopop superstar to outspoken political activist, an artist who has put her life and career on the line to support the determined struggle of Hong Kong citizens to maintain their identity and freedom.

"DENISE HO: BECOMING THE SONG is an inspiring documentary driven by an unwavering belief in the ability of people — particularly young people — to create the world they want to live in." Lovia Gyarkye. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
